It may say “Star Trek Beyond” in the title, but we go waaaaay beyond in this one with our guest Mark E. Deardorff of www.ScienceViaMarkets.com. In fact, for nearly 2 hours we talk about science-fiction in general, authors, warp-theory, energy mass, holodecks, replicators, Einstein, and more.
We get side-tracked quite a bit on this one and don’t give as much of a movie synopsis/analysis like our normal fare – so for those interested in that, here is the marketing slick for the movie and the trailer:
A surprise attack in outer space forces the Enterprise to crash-land on a mysterious world. The assault came from Krall (Idris Elba), a lizard-like dictator who derives his energy by sucking the life out of his victims. Krall needs an ancient and valuable artifact that’s aboard the badly damaged starship. Left stranded in a rugged wilderness, Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the crew must now battle a deadly alien race while trying to find a way off their hostile planet.
